Boss John Hughes was left to rue the manner of Preston's winning goal after Hartlepool were beaten again at Victoria Park.

North End captain John Mousinho scored the only goal of the game in first-half stoppage time.

It came from a deep corner from Jack King and the skipper found space to head across goal and through the legs of goalkeeper Scott Flinders, who four minutes earlier had produced a superb save to keep out Nicky Wroe's penalty.

After a fifth home loss in a row, Hughes said: "It just didn't go for us did it? Yes it was disappointing in the way we conceded the goal.

"Scotty made a great save from the penalty, then we give away a corner and they score form it - very disappointing.

"It would be nice if we were beaten by something good, some well-worked goal. We beat ourselves, it's the fundamental things and you have to make sure you are hard to break down and don't give things to the opposition."
